1. Index interpretation
The growth rate of industrial value added, that is, the rate of industrial growth, is an index used to reflect the degree of change in the volume of industrial production in a certain period of time. By using this index, we can judge the operation trend of the short-term industrial economy and the prosperity degree of the economy, and it is also an important reference and basis for formulating and adjusting economic policies and implementing macro-control.
Product sales rate: the ratio of sales output value to total industrial output value, which is used to reflect the connection between production and marketing of industrial products.
Export delivery value: refers to the value of products exported by industrial enterprises (including those sold to Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan) or handed over to foreign trade departments for export, as well as the value of products produced by foreign businessmen, such as sample supplied, supplied material processing, supplied parts assembly and compensation trade, etc.
Average daily output: it is calculated by dividing the total output of industrial enterprises above the size announced in that month by the number of calendar days of the month.
2. Statistical range
The statistical scope of industries above scale is industrial enterprises with annual main business income of 20 million yuan or more.
As the scope of industrial enterprises above scale changes from year to year, in order to ensure that this year's data is comparable to that of last year, the number of the same period used to calculate the year-on-year growth rate of product output and other indicators is consistent with the statistical scope of enterprises in this period as far as possible, there is a caliber difference with the data released last year. The main reasons are: (1) the range of statistical units has changed. Every year, some enterprises reach the scale to be included in the scope of the survey, and some enterprises withdraw from the scope of the investigation because of the smaller scale, as well as the influence of new production enterprises, bankruptcy, injection (hanging) sales enterprises and so on. (2) the product output data of some enterprise groups (companies) have the phenomenon of cross-regional repeated statistics, and the cross-regional repeated output of enterprise groups (companies) is weighed according to the special survey.
3. Investigation method
Industrial production reports of industrial enterprises above scale shall be comprehensively investigated on a monthly basis (data exemption in January).
4. Division of the eastern, central, western and northeastern regions.
The eastern region includes 10 provinces (cities) of Beijing, Tianjin, Hebei, Shanghai, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Fujian, Shandong, Guangdong and Hainan; the central region includes 6 provinces (cities) of Shanxi, Anhui, Jiangxi, Henan, Hubei and Hunan; the western region includes 12 provinces (municipalities and autonomous regions) of Inner Mongolia, Guangxi, Chongqing, Sichuan, Guizhou, Yunnan, Tibet, Shaanxi, Gansu, Qinghai, Ningxia and Xinjiang. The northeast region includes three provinces: Liaoning, Jilin and Heilongjiang.
5. Industry classification standard
Implement the national economic industry classification standard (GB/T 4754-2017), see http://www.stats.gov.cn/tjsj/tjbz/hyflbz for details.
6. Revision of month-on-month data
According to the results of automatic correction of the seasonal adjustment model, the month-on-month growth rate of industrial added value above scale from August 2019 to July 2020 is revised. The revised results and month-on-month figures for August 2020 are as follows:
